"Ultimate Product" for 2004 Selected by Readers and Editors of EE Times and eeProductCenter
BEAVERTON, Ore., March 15, 2005 - Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE: TEK), a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, announced that the TPS2000 family of digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) has received the EE Times Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) award.
The inaugural EE Times ACE awards honor those who are leading the way and making positive contributions - the real innovators of technology. The TPS2000 was named the "Ultimate Product" in Test & Measurement for 2004, the most significant product introduced in the last twelve months. Finalists in each category were chosen by qualified readers of EE Times and eeProductCenter on a quarterly basis via electronic balloting.
"We think of the Ultimate Products program as the Zagat's guides of the electronics industry," said Paul Miller, VP/Group Publisher, CMP Media Electronics Group. "The awards celebrate the companies and products that demonstrate leadership in the electronics industry. Tektronix is to be congratulated for having several finalists in the Test & Measurement category and for the TPS2000 "the Ultimate Product for Test & Measurement for 2004."
"This peer-reviewed Ultimate Product award for 2004 from the editors and readers of EE Times and eeProductCenter for the TPS2000 is gratifying and an honor," said Bob Bluhm, General Manager, Value Oscilloscope Products, Tektronix, Inc. "The TPS2000 oscilloscopes provide an all-in-one solution that enables customers to accomplish more in less time and with less equipment. We're proud that our innovation helps our customers to be more productive."
TPS2000: Ideal for Lab or Field Use
The TPS2000 Series DSOs are designed to improve the productivity of designers and technicians requiring a powerful, general-purpose oscilloscope in a compact, portable package. The TPS2000 Series are the first full-featured, four-isolated-channel, battery-powered oscilloscopes providing an accomplished measurement tool equally adept in the lab or in the field.
The TPS2000 Series enables designers and technicians to make floating and differential measurements quickly, accurately and affordably. Floating measurements up to 30 Vrms can be made using the standard P2220 probe provided with the TPS2000 oscilloscopes. Floating measurements of higher voltages can be made using the TPS2PBND Power Bundle option. With the TPS2000 Series, users can also quickly capture elusive glitches or anomalies that elude other oscilloscopes in this class, and characterize fast edges on four channels simultaneously with unique digital real-time (DRT) sampling technology. Users can also easily correlate measurements between bench, lab or field with the industry's longest battery operation.
